All bicycles travel hostile to clockwide around the track in races which comprise of 4 riders, 2 from the host group and 2 away (the voyaging group). To get around the tight corners at fast the riders really need to quicken to bring the back wheel out and start a “slip”.

Association FORMAT

Like football, speedway groups contend to be top of the alliance table and get an opportunity of contending in the Play-Off finals to become Champions toward the finish of the period. Beauty Vue races in the Premiership, which is the top flight group in the UK. The Belle Vue Colts are an advancement group and race in the National League.


The Speedway season runs from March until September. When groups arrive at the play-off cut-off date, just the best 4 groups run into October where play-off semi and play-off finals occur.


Speedway gatherings is when 2 groups race against one another. Each group is comprised of 7 riders. Every rider has a normal, which means their scoring potential in a race meeting. As far as possible for groups to assemble a group of 7 in the class is 42.5 so groups ought to be equitably coordinated.


Speedway riders race the whole way across Europe and our very own portion riders are Australian so will come all the way back to Australia to finish throughout our winter. Frequently, they are flying in just to contend and fly out to race in Europe the extremely following day (or even that night).

Every rider will have 4 booked riders over the 15 race on the night, known as warms. Each warmth keeps going around 60 seconds. The last warmth on the night is heat 15 which is an assigned warmth and riders will be picked by the Team Manager dependent on the gathering’s scorecard.

It’s a simple arrangement to comprehend, focuses are granted as pursues:

  • 3 for a success
  • 2 for second
  • 1 point for third
  • 0 points for last

The focuses that every rider scores are tallied towards the group’s aggregate toward the finish of the gathering. Most fans purchase a program (racecard) to track the outcomes on the day. Request that somebody help fill it in to begin however you’ll before long get its hang.

The triumphant group will be the group with the most focuses on the night with focuses for the alliance table being granted as pursues:

  • Home misfortune by any measure of focuses = 0
  • Home draw = 1

So to summarize Speedway it’s four laps of hard and fast speed, control, energy and excites as 4 riders go for the checkered banner out of appreciation for their group. Interestingly, this happens only yards from where you’re sitting or standing and the superstars (the riders) are effectively available to see and meet. At Belle Vue, we have a post race public interview in the Peter Craven Suite, which is an open door for fans to draw near to riders.
